Only the Heat’s second win in over two months.
MIAMI – The sound you heard Tuesday night was not the scant crowd at AmericanAirlines Arena offering its approval of the Heat’s 107-86 victory over the Kings.
Instead, it was the pop of the champagne in Philadelphia, where the 1972-73 76ers were assured of another year of their place in history.
As bad as it has gotten this season, the Heat won’t be the worst team in NBA history.
Instead, broadcaster and former 76ers guard Fred Carter can retain his claim as “the best player on the worst team ever.”
With Philadelphia’s 9-73 infamy of 35 years ago out of the way, the Heat next can concentrate of shedding a different layer of shame, the franchise’s worst finish of 15-67 during its inaugural 1988-89 season.
Call it a gut feeling, but I think Miami will win more than 15 games. Not by much though.
